Simple Charming Rustic French Style Christmas Decor

cloth and patina french rustic christmas31 So this post is for the “few” of you that are not frantically running around in the last minutes of the Christmas madness and want to look at a few more Christmas photos. I know it’s super late getting these up, but better late than never right? So I thought I would put up just a few photos of my Christmas decor this year. I am going to apologize in advance for some of the “not so great” pics. My camera has been broken and I have been waiting to get in my new lens and have it back up and running, but no such luck.

So anyway, this year I kept my Christmas decor very simple and kinda went for a French, rustic glam look (for lack of a better title). I incorporated a few of my architectural salvage pieces throughout the house both as accessories and as ornaments on the tree.

Glammed up my favorite candle sticks with a bit of burlap and vintage rhinestones and left it at that.

Thinking it has an elegant, but comfortable look while still being festive.  cloth and patina french rustic christmas23

I used one of my architectural pieces on the table as a simple centerpiece. It’s a beautiful concrete piece that I turned over and filled with a bit of greenery and a few white and silver ornaments.

cloth and patina french rustic christmas36 I thought it would look pretty this year to hang these old doors over the sofa and add just a bit of green. Trader Joes had these charming little wreaths for only $5.99! Just loved them. So wishing I would have bought more, of course when I went back they were all sold out. I pried off the old hardware (saving to use in a later project) and add these most gorgeous vintage handles…love, love them! I am in love with this adorable little wood deer ornament that came to me as a surprise one day from Kelly at Art By Kelly. Just a small sampling of her charming work!

I covered one of my old lamp shade frames with jute and burlap and topped it with a cute little finial and am so happy with how it turned out.

Not the greatest pic, but hopefully you can see the tree and the ornaments a bit. I added rhinestones to a bunch of old vintage hardware, knobs, and door plates to hang as ornaments this year.

A view from the (work in progress) dining room. With my partially set table : ) I will hopefully soon get up my dining room before and after post. Hoping you all will put the pressure on so I get it up sooner than later.

 Eventually those verticals are coming down and will be replaced with dropcloth curtains..yay!

cloth and patina french rustic christmas12 Just a peek at the table top that I am almost done with. Trying to go for a driftwood finish, but the table had so much damage that it is taking me a lot longer than I thought. I am super happy with how the chairs turned out and can’t wait to share more pics with you on those!

Well, that’s it for now. Sorry to be getting this up so late, but hoping you enjoyed it all the same.

Wishing you and your families a Very Merry Christmas, filled with lots of love and laughter.

      Kat,

      Again so sorry for not getting your message until now and thanks for putting on a little pressure! I seem to work better that way. I had to change up my plans for the dropcloth curtains in the living and dining room. They just look too heavy and overwhelming. So went with a sheer curtain instead. I am hoping now that my blog is up and running again to get caught up on posts. Thanks so much for stopping in!

      Hugs,
      Tammy

        Hello there! The walls are Oyster Shell by Valspar at 50% tint. I did the full tint in my bedroom and the 50% around the rest of the house. It is a light creamy taupe color. Let me know if you have any other questions. Kindest,
        Tammy

    Hi Tammy. Your home is absolutely beautiful! I also have Saltillo tile floors and have been trying to figure out a good wall color. I looked up Oyster Shell by Valspar and could not find the color. Perhaps it has been discontinued. The only color I could find that was similar was Oyster pearl by Valspar. Any chance it was actually oyster pearl that you used? Thank you for any recommendations you can provide!

      Angela,

      Oh my gosh, I am so very sorry that I did not see your comment! I usually will get a notice if there is a comment? Yes, it was actually Oyster Pearl, sorry about that. I will update that on the blog as well so there isn’t any confusion. Did you ever try the wall color?

      Tammy
